As I stated in yesterdays post, 2015 is the year I get fit. I don’t have any unrealistic goals..she says…it isn’t about losing 10 stone in 2 months and cutting out certain foods completely. I mean, don’t be daft?!
It’s about looking after myself better. In all senses of the word, looking after my skin, my hair, and my food/exercise habits. I don’t only want to look good on the outside, but feel good on the inside! I want to have a newfound energy, the motivation to get up and go..which i’m seriously lacking at the minute. You know that saying ‘Eat Shit, Feel Shit’?? That is me in a nutshell right now. I’ve eaten so much bad food and just lost all motivation to even try and change that.
I know people say, oh all the cliched New Year resolutions ‘New Year, New Me’ and i’m not saying that. I actually quite like me, most of the time. My quote is more like..’New Year, New IMPROVED Me’. I feel like I should make some sarcastic joke after that like..HA like I can improve..but that would be lying to myself and aint’ nobody got time for that.
People also say that ‘If you really wanted to change, you wouldn’t wait until New Year’ well I feel like telling them people to BACK OFF. Nothing screams a fresh start more, than a brand new year! I for one feel more motivated now, at the start of 2015, than I did last month or two months ago.
My fitness goals for this year are to get my ass to the gym!! At least twice a week, whether that is in the gym or taking part in one of the classes. I also really want to try new classes, some I wouldn’t have tried before. I always look at the names of classes and think NAH it sounds too hard, SOUNDS. How can a name make a class sound hard?! 2014 Rachael had issues.
I’m also going to cook from scratch as much as possible. I am a huge fan of cooking and trying new recipes, but I got stuck in a rut of not cooking at all, so i’m really excited to get back into the swing of things in the kitchen. I also got some new cookbooks for Christmas so i’m excited to give them a go. The recipes may not all be super healthy, but surely cooking from scratch in general is better than a huge chinese…and I mean huge. If I was going to order a chinese, I may as well have done it right. Go large or go home! Well, no more! If I want a chinese, I better learn how to make one ASAP.
I’m hoping to post lots of different recipe posts so keep your eyes peeled for them. I always post recipes or meal inspiration on my Instagram so check that out. @FromRachael_Claire
